(a primer from the folks that brought you "The Assignment" and other pontifications.....)
HOW TO: Get 30,000 hits to your blog.........in 5 easy steps:
- Start a blog:
Easy enough, right? Or, in this case is it write? In any case (well, not really ANY case....) first you need to create an on-line destination for folks to actually read, share, and be inspired by your rants.
To do this you have many convenient choices. Here are but a few:
- Does require a Google account
- (but hey, if you don't have one of these yet....
- that's a different post altogether)
- Easy to use, simple to customize, and absolutely FREE
- Can be free
- can also be heavily customized for a few bucks
- easy to use
- and yes, free
- There are many, many, more to suite any taste or budget......
- No, really. you need to write....a lot.
- Then write some more.
- Occasionally, you will actually write something worth publishing
- Sometimes you will even publish something worth sharing....
- Regardless, you must write. It's what writers do.
- All the time
- Other bloggers stuff
- Read. All the time
5. Lather, rinse, repeat......
Do all of this and in a couple of years (or sooner if you are more talented than this hack) you too will have over 30,000 hits.
Still not convinced?
